Good Deal: Grab an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition for $245 delivered from Expansys

Expansys Australia has a free shipping promotion on the Google Play Edition of LG‘s G Pad 8.3 at the moment. You can pick one up for a total cost $244.99, providing you use DHL as the courier. The Australian G Pad 8.3 (with LG’s customised Android UI) got a lukewarm response from Jason earlier this year, but we’ve seen a few people take them up as their tablet of choice in the last few months. The Google Play Edition version of the tablet should address our software concerns, and Expansys is offering the tablet at a good price. If you’ve[Read More...]

LG announces the G3 UX to become standard on low-mid range smartphones and tablets

LG announces the G3 UX to become standard on low-mid range smartphones and tablets

LG is quite proud of their latest iteration of the UX for their G3, it’s a matured skin which has really come a long way from their quite outlandish initial offerings. LG has today announced that they will begin standardising some of the proprietary features from the G3 into their low-mid range smartphones and tablets which will launch later this year. There’s a lot to like about the UX on the G3, and LG has been moving features from their high-end G series phones to lower end models since the Optimus G. Features like Knock Code have made their way[Read More...]

LG G Watch Cradle now available to purchase from Google Play

LG G Watch Cradle now available to purchase from Google Play

Early adopters of the LG G Watch have been limited by the proprietary nature of the G Watch’s charging cradle, if you stuck it to your bedside table, the thought of trying to peel it off to take away with you on a trip has sent shudders down many a spine. The good news is, as of this morning the LG G Watch Charging Cradle is now available to purchase from Google Play.

New stylus toting LG G3 model, unsurprisingly called the G3 Stylus shown off in new video from LG

New stylus toting LG G3 model, unsurprisingly called the G3 Stylus shown off in new video from LG

The LG G3 has only just rolled into stores in Australia, but that seems to be just the start, the G3 Beat was recently announced with decidedly lower end specs, and now a new model has appeared in a product video for the G3 Beat on the LG Mobile Global YouTube page. Like the G3 Beat, the G3 Stylus may be a lower end offering designed to perhaps replace the LG Optimus Vu, their other stylus driven mobile offering. The LG G3 Stylus is shown off with the stulus tucked into the phone at the top on the right hand-side,[Read More...]

Want an LG G3 that’s (sort of) made out of Gold? JB HiFi has one for you.

Want an LG G3 that’s (sort of) made out of Gold? JB HiFi has one for you.

From today we’re starting to see the arrival of LG G3 stock available in stores, both from carriers directly, and also in dealers such as JB HiFi. One intrepid Ausdroid editor spotted this in today’s JB HiFi catalogue; not only is the G3 now advertised as being available, but it’s also available in gold colour (which we had heard might not actually have been coming to Australia). It seems it’s here, and it’s available from JB HiFi on Telstra plans. $77 per month gets you the LG G3 in Gold on a Telstra $70 plan, which includes $700 worth of[Read More...]

Software update for LG G Watch rolling out to address corrosion issue

Software update for LG G Watch rolling out to address corrosion issue

The exposed copper contacts on the rear of the LG G Watch have been causing some issues for some owners of the watch, with some owners reporting corrosion of the POGO pins. But a software update rolling out to the G Watch, is apparently addressing this. The corrosion of the pins is due to a galvanic process – a chemical reaction between two materials (Metals in this case) when voltage is run through an electrolyte (sweat). The update is said to address this issue by disabling the current while not charging. A commentor on Android Police provided the text of[Read More...]

Optus LG G3 pre-orders begin to arrive at customers doors

Optus LG G3 pre-orders begin to arrive at customers doors

This morning a lucky customer who pre-ordered an LG G3 from Optus received a notification that an LG G3 was awaiting collection at their local post office. This is a little ahead of the official date for stock to arrive in-store which is expected around the 4th of August. It’s good to see that those that pre-ordered may receive their new phones before they officially go on sale in retail stores. You can still pre-order the LG G3 from the Optus website and receive a bonus wireless charger valued at $69 but you won’t receive the bonus LG G Pad[Read More...]

LG announces an 11.6″ Android powered TabBook 11 for the Korean market

LG announces an 11.6″ Android powered TabBook 11 for the Korean market

LG isn’t one to shy away from a form-factor, they have the scale and facilities to really try out anything to see what happens and that seems to be what they’re doing with the TabBook 11, an 11.6″ Android Powered tablet witha sliding keyboard. The TabBook is destined for the Korean market only at this stage, with the announcement made on the LG Korean site. It’s a fairly large device with an 11.6″ slider keyboard arrangement which appears to detach when not required so you can carry around a decidedly over-sized tablet. Specs wise, the tablet is a monster. The[Read More...]

LG’s improving sales turn around three quarters of losses

LG’s improving sales turn around three quarters of losses

LG‘s just released their financial results for Q2 (Apr-Jun) 2014, and if you’re a fan of the company then things are looking pretty good. The company’s turned a profit of AU $625m (US$588.5m), an increase of 26.5% year-over-year. A decent chunk of this – and the part we care most about – is coming from the modestly-named LG Mobile Communications Company division, which shipped 14.5 million smartphones in Q2 (a 16% increase in sales), ending three consecutive quarters of losses. People want LG phones, and we can’t fault them for that. Much of this success is attributed to initial enthusiasm[Read More...]
